Jean-Antoine Nollet

Jean-Antoine Nollet (19 November, 1700 – 25 April, 1770) was a French clergyman and physicist. As the head of a monastery, he was also known as Abbé Nollet. He was particularly interested in the new science of electricity, which he explored with the help of Du Fay and Réamur. He joined the Royal Society of London in 1734 and later became the first professor of experimental physics at the University of Paris. He is reputed to have given the name to the Leyden jar after it was invented by Pieter van Musschenbroek.fdm, vgfm,v dlgnvk; d'anb nkb
